    Hello,

    After a mistake about the attachments url, our traffic have been divide by two and we do not find the solution to resolve this problem.

    I’ve installed the plug-in a first time in last May and then reactivate it during July.

    Since, I’ve many errors in Google Search Console (404) or exploration error (server error).

    I don’t know what I can do more in my site. The traffic is going down every days.

    Can you tell me what I can do?

    Thanks

    Can you please let us know what the mistake was that occurred with attachment URLs was? Was it that they weren’t allowed to be redirected to the attachment itself and the attachment URLs then became indexed in Google?

    Exactly this case. I have many error in the Google Search Console and traffic have been divide by 2.5 since June.

    I’ve install the 410 plugin but it was worst. I’ve turn it off yesterday, try to remove manually the wrong url with Google Remove Url Tool but I don’t know if it’s a good solution…

    The aim of the Yoast SEO: Search Index Purge plugin is to purge attachment URLs from the search index by making all of your website’s attachment URLs return an HTTP 410 (content is gone) status. Google has approved of our method to solve this issue in the fastest way possible.

    That being said, Google Search Console may notify you of an increase in crawl errors. This is to be expected when a large quantity of previously indexable URLs suddenly return 410 status codes. You do not have to do anything and Google will eventually drop the attachment URLs from the search results since they don’t exist anymore.

    After six months the attachment URLs (410 crawl errors) should be gone from the search results. At that time, you should remove the search index purge plugin and keep the redirect setting of the attachment URLs set to “Yes”.
